My fall shopping list looks a little something like this: new cropped jeans, a beige sweater, combat boots, and a new handbag (someone please get me this mini Balenciaga tote !!). Getting a new scarf didn't even cross my mind because I already own three thick ones...do I really need more? But alas, a scarf is practical (it keeps your neck and upper body warm) and it's stylish, adding an extra color or print to your outfit. So, yes, I do need a new fall scarf. And so do you. How about one of the 10 cute options, below?
